Development Review Committee

The Development Review Committee coordinates development services for the City of Belton. The committee's mission is to have close contact with project representatives and to work to resolve issues at the earliest stages of development.


The development process typically begins by scheduling a meeting with DRC. The committee ensures efficient coordination of development services through the effective use of staff time, consistent technical interpretation, and quality decision-making, which is essential to the success of a project.
